With cool season grasses starting up that early in the Spring, you can easily NOT pre-m it until after it is large enough to endure...
My experience last year was that the new grass was green almost before the ground was actually warmed...
(I'm thinking it may be possible that the seed germinates under the snow and it is actually the embryo in suspended animation so it is ready to emerge before you would want to apply pre-m...)

This reminds me...
For the cold frame test I want to do,,, I need a good soil thermometer, that I can poke into the ground and leave it so that when at any time I chose to snap a photo it is reading what the current soil temp is...
Does anyone have any good recommendations??? Niether of our 2 best nurseries carry anything of the sort...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
